The Cretan Paradox

The Cretan diet is THE reference for nutritionists, yet Crete is at the top of the list for obesity and cardio-vascular diseases. In an uncertain global context, the Greek government is accused of being disengaged and its agricultural policy of being archaic. And yet some believe that agriculture in Crete has been fortunate to have avoided the errors of intensification and has thus been able to conserve biodiversity.
